Vincent Deporter (13 February 1959 – 27 September 2022)[2] was a Belgian comic and storyboard artist. Deporter got his start in comics working as an assistant to Jean Graton, before selling his own strips, as Mike Deporter, to Spirou magazine.[3] From 1996, after relocating to New York, he worked on DC's line of comic books adapted from popular animated cartoons, like Scooby-Doo and Ed, Edd n Eddy,[4][5] and also inked many of the Batman, and Superman style-guides. He continued to work for Nickelodeon, notably on SpongeBob SquarePants. When Nickelodeon Magazine ended its print run, he then started to write and draw for the SpongeBob Comics as a regular contributor.[3] Deporter also wrote and illustrated on more philosophical issues. He illustrated the book Sacred Cows: a Lighthearted Look at Belief and Tradition around the World, by the host of The Thinking Atheist Seth Andrews. He lived in Arizona, painting and writing non-graphic novels.
